HAWK-I at Paranal

Project Manager Jeff Pirard and ESO staff Raul Esteves are checking HAWK-I on Yepun at Paranal. Working in the near-infrared, HAWK-I covers about 1/10th the area of the Full Moon in a single exposure. It is uniquely suited to the discovery and study of faint objects, such as distant galaxies or small stars and planets.
